Alana started as a Paramedic with the BC Ambulance Service
and as a First Aid Attendant/Traffic Control person with construction and control burn crews. She was introduced to Occupational Health and Safety while working as a labourer with the 1611 Union Cariboo District, and then went on the complete the Construction Safety Officer Course. She continued to build her experience with projects like the Sea to Sky Hwy, Run of the River Projects, Kearl Lake Project and Cape Scott Wind Farm. She received her CHSC designation in 2013, and was hired by SNC-Lavalin in 2014 for the John Hart project.
She and her husband moved to Campbell River 2010, though she was raised on Vancouver Island. Despite having lived all over the province, Alana always seems to find her way back home: the Island has always been just that, home.
Always busy, Alana fills her time with photography, crochet, gardening and canning, to preserve that garden year round.
As safety coordinator, Alana is responsible for providing support to the construction team for execution of the safety plan. That includes overseeing risk assessment processes, safety training requirements, monitoring subcontractor adherence to the safety program and more.
